    Cuvée presentation

    Only produced in exceptional vintages, Les Vieilles Fontaines comes from a terroir which is itself exceptional. The vines of Syrah actually grow on a superb granite soil. With deep roots, the vines provide very expressive grapes. Like most of the domain's wines, the bunches are cut by hand and the partially stemmed grumes (grape seeds) are fermented with native yeast before maceration for several weeks in stainless steel vats. Punch-down and pump-over take place on a daily basis. So many treatments that allow the cuvée to age for at least 25 years. And such surprisingly delicate tannins. The wine is deep, robust and persistent. A wine of great elegance ... providing you wait before opening it, of course!

    Information about domain Alain Voge

    In 1958, Alain Voge joined his father working the small family farm and decided abandon polyculture and devote the entire land to the growing of vines. The northern Rhône appellation Cornas owes much to this winemaker who has contributed greatly to putting this unknown appellation on the map. Today, the family has vines in several appellations: Cornas (6.5 ha), Saint-Péray (4ha), Saint-Joseph and Côtes-du-Rhône. His Syrahs are world renowned, as are his whites and sparklings from Saint-Péray. The ex-technical director of Chapoutier, Albéric Mazoyer has been working with the domain since 2004 and the wines are going from strength to strength. The domain has held biodynamic certification since 2013 and the wines drink beautifully both in youth and old age.
